Okay so the reality is that we technically never have supported newline in filenames because the dependency generator depends on using newline as filename separator, and that couldn't be easily changed. While easily handled in C, these things are truly evil in the scriptlets that end up doing much of the heavy lifting, and fixing the scripts to handle something that really should never be packaged to begin with would be a golly waste of time.

So lets go with this and explicitly ban the crazy filenames instead, filed #768 for that.
